Friday Favorites - Middle of June 2023

June 16, 2023


Hello friends.  I hope you all had a nice week.  I can't believe that it's already the middle of June.  I am looking forward to enjoying the summer.

We had a few days last week with bad air quality due to the fires in Canada.  One night I took a picture of the sky.  The sky looked so gray.  I'm happy that the air quality was much better this week.

I have romaine lettuce growing and it was ready to be picked.  My husband and I shared a salad this week.

On my walk to the gym this week I saw these pretty flowers.

I made a quick shopping trip to Costco this week.  I needed lettuce, veggies, and fruit.  I spotted this pack of Scrub Daddy sponges.  My daughter turned me onto these sponges.  I love using one in the kitchen for cleaning pots and pans.  I also love using these sponges to scrub down my shower walls.  

Have you ever used a Scrub Daddy sponge?

On my last shopping trip to Trader Joe's I picked up this facial sunscreen.  I love using this sunscreen on my face before I apply my makeup.  This sunscreen is perfect to use during the summer months.  

My blog friend Heather loves shopping at Trader Joe's.  You can click here to see her recent shopping haul.

Have you tried this sunscreen yet?  It's supposed to be compared to Super Goop.

I hope you have a happy Friday and weekend!

  1. I used to have those same purple blub flowers! Funny story-- my nephew who was quite little at the time chopped the heads off them.. and they never grew back!

  2. The smokey weather was so strange, I'm glad it's cleared up. Your romaine looks so good!! I should try growing it in a container. I haven't seen the Scrub Daddies at Costco yet. I do like them. Thank you for the shout out!! I hope you're off to a great Friday!

  3. How wonderful you could have a salad fresh out of your garden. I am glad the smoke has cleared up for all of you. We had some but not like you guys in New York. Have a great weekend. Hugs. Kris

  4. Wow, your sky was not a pretty sight, Julie! I’m glad it has since cleared. I’ll have to look for those sponges. I have never tried that sunscreen. How wonderful to have homegrown lettuce for your salad! Happy weekend!

  5. Love Scrub Daddies...they are so good. Your lettuce looks amazing !

  6. Wasn't that smoke terrible? I'm so glad it's behind us and I hope it stays there. I've never tried those sponges, I'll have to keep my eyes open for them and I'm jealous of your lettuce. We have a bunny who's been enjoying ours!! Haha!!

  7. That smoke was unbelievable - the sky was orange here. I do use Scrub Daddies - love them because food doesn't stick to them. Never thought of using them in the shower - that's a great idea. I'll be looking for that sunscreen!


Thanks for stopping by my blog and your comments always make me happy.
